History & History Related Items

Winthrop history:

Winthrop was like most small towns in the area until the early 1890s when a trading post was established here in response to the influx of miners coming up to the lode mines. It gradually became the center stagin point for most miners. Unfortunately, the boom was not long-lived and by 1915, most of the mines had shut down. Of course, Winthrop, being a major supplier for the miners, took a hard hit with the closures. The town, however, would not die and continued to stay on, even incorporating on 12 March 1924. When the Great Depression came during the 1930ís, the town once again had hard times.
